Jan. 1st photo setup

    Newer Older

    Here's a quick visual description of the set up for the outside snow shoot.
    Talk about bare bones, get in and get out type of activity.
    But seeing that it was cold, damp and in the middle of a parking lot, it was the only way to go.

      You say that your car models are diecast, but what about the buildings and the rest of your setup? Models or scratch-built? They are amazing, as are your photos.

      Until I took a really close look at your pictures I found it hard to believe that these are just models.

      truly amazing work.

      Thankyou, you have taken us a wonderful journey of memories. And of course, the design feature of the vehicles of the era make today's functional boxes totally boring.

      Thank you MIchael you brought back memories like Perrette which was long forgotten. You are a genius and I hope you post many more photos for us to enjoy.

      Thanks for the memory. Back in the 50's when we were teenagers my car loving brother Eddie had a 39 Oldsmobile which was beautiful and in beautiful shape. The Oldsmobile garage in Weirton, WV told him anytime he wanted they would take it as an even trade for a new car. He declined! Since I had been born in 1939 I tried to get him to let me have this wonderful car to keep FOREVER. Sadly, he declined again and eventually the car was gone, along with a piece of my heart.

      Your work is outstanding! Incredible detailing. A real pleasure to see and be taken back to an earlier time. Thanks for posting these, Mike! Sigh, now back to the real world. : (

      Hey ! ... You're giving away all your secrets ! ... But that's a good thing if it inspires folks like "sartech76" (and no doubt countless others) !

      I've seen this done with model airplanes so that they appear to be real planes sitting on a tarmac. ... Ever tried that?

      Again, great work !

      Michael, you are a true dedicated car guy! I'm in the process of creating a diorama shpwing a before/after of the restoration of my 1956 Chevrolet BelAir convertible. Your spread has given me inspiration! THANK YOU!

      Let's see... We had 38 inches of snow on the ground last week. IN 1/25th scale that would be just over 95 ft of snow. So far it's melted down to about 20 inches. That's just enough that one of the mountains is starting to become visible on my train layout in the front yard. I think it's safe to say they won't be keeping the normal schedule for quite some time. That's good because I have plenty of things to keep me busy indoors for a while.

      Good snow shots! Almost as realistic as the real thing... except you could probably shovel the entire neighborhood in 2-3 shovels full. Love working in miniature...
